New MySQL web installer, Have you tried it yet?

We recognize that the most important part to get you started is getting the products you want installed and well configured. That's why the installer team has been working really hard to enhance the user experience with MySQL products. We are proud to announce a newer, lighter version of the MySQL Installer is available for download at our website.

Have you tried the new MySQL Web Installer yet? Do it now!

It weights barely more than 1.5 MB in total but packs the ability to let you select any product from the MySQL family. The web installer will  handle the process of downloading, and installing what you need and will help you with configuration too.

MySQL Notifier 1.1.5 has been released

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release of MySQL Notifier version 1.1.5, the  latest addition to the MySQL Installer for Windows.

MySQL Notifier 1.1.5 introduces the following features:

 

  • The MySQL Utilities can now be opened from MySQL Notifier if installed separately from MySQL Workbench (it is no longer bundled with MySQL Workbench 6.x).
  • Added Workbench connections edition capability right from the Monitor MySQL Server Instance window of the MySQL Notifier (accessed through Actions > Manage Monitored Items… > Add… > MySQL Instance). Any of the listed MySQL Workbench connections can be right-clicked and a new “Edit Connection” context menu is available for users to edit the Workbench connection properties.
  • Changed the way the Workbench connections and servers files are monitored, now the Notifier detects automatically when Workbench is installed or uninstalled and starts or stops monitoring its files on those events so MySQL  Notifier does not need to be restarted to setup the monitoring of the files.
MySQL Notifier is installed using the MySQL Installer for Windows. You can download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads page at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/.

MySQL for Excel 1.1.3 has been released

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release of MySQL for Excel version 1.1.3, the  latest addition to the MySQL Installer for Windows.

MySQL for Excel 1.1.3 is a maintenance release containing a handful of bug fixes and the following minor features:

  • Upon saving a Workbook containing Worksheets in Edit Mode, the user is asked if he wants to exit the Edit Mode on all Worksheets before their parent Workbook is saved so the Worksheets are saved unprotected, otherwise the Worksheets will remain protected and the users will be able to unprotect them later retrieving the passkeys from the application log after closing MySQL for Excel.
  • Added background coloring to the column names header row of an Import Data operation to have the same look as the one in an Edit Data operation (i.e. gray-ish background).
  • Connection passwords can be stored securely just like MySQL Workbench does and these secured passwords are shared with Workbench in the same way connections are.
  • Changed the way the MySQL for Excel ribbon toggle button works, instead of just showing or hiding the add-in it actually opens and closes it.
  • Added a connection test before any operation against the database (schema creation, data import, append, export or edition) so the operation dialog is not shown and a friendlier error message is shown.

MySQL for Excel is installed using the MySQL Installer for Windows. You can download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads page at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/.

MySQL for Windows Store apps

Windows 8 has ushered in the era of Windows Store apps and touch in a Windows OS.  Windows Store apps can be written in a multitude of languages including all .NET languages, Javascript, HTML, and C/C++.  We want to make it easy to write Windows Store apps that connect to the MySQL database.  To that end, we have included Windows Store compatibility in our recent Connector/Net 6.7 release.

 This is done by providing a separate assembly that exposes some of the functionality of the standard Connector/Net provider.   Some of the areas of functionality that is limited or missing as compared to stock Connector/Net are:

  • SSL connections or Windows authentication is not supported
  • MySQLDataAdapter objects are not supported. All access should be through MySQLCommand and MySQLDataReader.
  • Only TCP connections are supported
  • Tracing is not supported
  • GetSchema methods return a different type of object instead of DataTable
  • Some of the constructors have been removed or modified.

You can read more about this at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/connector-net-rt.html.

We think that Windows Store apps are a key component of the Windows story going forward and we will continue to improve and support development of Windows Store application.  To get started developing apps, please download Connector/Net 6.7 from here and be sure and catch a followup tutorial blog from one of our lead developers Roberto Garcia.

MySQL Notifier 1.1.4 has been released

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release of MySQL Notifier version 1.1.4, the  latest addition to the MySQL Installer for Windows.

MySQL Notifier 1.1.4 introduces the following features:

  • Monitoring of services in remote Windows computers (any service, not only MySQL Server services, similar to the local services monitoring offered in MySQL Notifier 1.0.3) via asynchronous Windows Management Instrumentation. Monitored services are grouped by computer name where the topmost is the Localhost. After a service in the Localhost or a remote computer is added to the monitored list, the MySQL Notifier automatically monitors for MySQL Server services addition (this option can be turned-off by users).
  • Monitoring of MySQL Server instances on any platform via a timer configurable by users.  These instances are monitored via MySQL Workbench connections which are automatically shared with the MySQL Notifier. If MySQL Workbench is not installed, the connections are saved and used by the MySQL Notifier and migrated to MySQL Workbench if the latter is installed.

MySQL Notifier is installed using the MySQL Installer for Windows. You can download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads page at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/.
